The Cinematic Katzenjammer: The Trailer Park: Hitchcock


The Trailer Park: Hitchcock

It's taken a long time for us to get an Alfred Hitchcock biopic. Yet, 2012 sees two of them hitting theaters, The Girl, starring Toby Jones, and Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins. Hitchcock follows the famed director as he struggles to make Psycho, his biggest hit. Directed by Sacha Gervasi, Hitchcock dissects the life of the man behind the camera (and every so often, popping up in front of it), dramatizing his personal relationship with his wife, Alma (Helen Mirren) and his interactions with his Psycho stars. 

Below is the first trailer for the film and it looks splendid. Hopkins looks like he's having a blast in the role and the supporting actors look just as impressive. Even though we all know the story of Psycho and its effect on pop culture as well as the thriller genre, not many of us know the behind-the-scenes story of how it was made. Hitchcock looks very interesting and I can't wait to see it. We definitely know it's going to be heavily talked about come Oscar season. The film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, James D'Arcy, and Danny Huston. Hitchcock hits theaters November 23. 

What are your thoughts on the trailer? Do you think Hopkins can pull off Hitchcock?

This film looks very good. Hopkins appears to be bringing it for this role.

Yes he does. Leaves me very excited. He looks to be having a blast with the role and bringing the professionalism and the humor Hitchcock was known for having in real life.

Anthony Hopkins looks and sounds like Hitchcock, but Scarjo resembles very little of Janet Leigh especially in the shower scene. Her voice just doesn't match. Still looks really good

I didn't think you'd complain about the possibility to see her naked lol. But yes, I do agree. Biel's in it too.. which just doesn't make sense. But Hopkins looks like he'll make it amazing.
